Comment: I am a iPhone5 user. After a year of that dull boring phone I am going back to Android and I have just purchase the LG G2 - 32 gig version. I have read so many reviews about this phone and they are all excellent, Sounds like I made a right move at a bargain price.
Good: Speed, Screen, Camera, Live battery, Very good phone in general
Bad: Change stations on the Radio and turn off. Maximize the screen usage.
Comment: We appreciate the fact that the LG G2 has Radio but we really miss the ability of the 3rd button of the headset to change stations and turn off the Radio. It's not justified the fact to take it out of my pockets every time I want to change stations. Hopefully this will be improved in updates.
I really like the three Front Touch Buttons on the screen 5.2 inches. However, this buttons greatly reduce the real screen size to 4.9 inches most of the apps. I suggest a new option to hide/show this buttons in order to maximize the screen usage. Hopefully this will be improved in updates.
Good: power, display, battery and UI.
Bad: audio speaker placement (good headphone sound though)
Comment: My only complaint is that when using audio speaker it is easy to block the speaker and thus the sound with your hand. That said, this is a common problem with other phones apart from HTC One.
This is a fantastic phone with everything you could ever want available at very competitive contract prices.
Good: everything its tthe best cell phone ive had so far ive had htc,iphone,androidand more.......
Bad: the off button in back is not bad just have to get used to somtthing ive nver had before.
Comment: Throw ur iphones and moto in the toilet and buy this LG G2 u wont regret it i promise.
Good: Great Screen, long battery life, brilliant camera and it is fast
Bad: The only thing I found at fault is that it cannot keep the time and date when switched off.
Comment: I chose this phone because of the large screen and the price was right. It replaces my old HTC Desire HD. I bought it from Amazon UK.
Apart from calls and texts I use it sometimes for e-mail when not at home. My main use is for word processing, I do a lot of that and photography.
My main gripe so far has been that the phone appears not to have an internal clock. I say this because it can't keep the time and date if I switch it off at night.I have called LG several times and three e-mails have not resolved the problem but that will not put me off as the device has a lot going for it.
I have only had the phone a couple of weeks and still have to get to grips with all it has to offer.
Good: Lightning fast, amazing display, crystal clear, never lags, great battery life
Bad: some may not like the plastic back case.
Comment: I researched the 4g LG G2 before deciding to buy one, sim free, for a good price. This is truly at the highest end of smart phone technology available at the moment. Packing an impressive 2.26 Ghz quad core processor, that would grace many a decent laptop or desktop device. This gives a fluid interface for the user, no lagging behind, no matter what you ask it to do.
A super clear HD 400 pixel led display looks amazing, without appearing almost cartoon like as it can on some phones. Dual camera's and all the usual tasks we expect our phones to do are carried out with ease, messaging, e mail,
Bad: The phone is very flimsy. The touch screen is not as good as iPhone - I need to press hard the number key or alphabet key one by one to get it through.
Comment: I bought the LG G2 in Hong Kong for use for just over a month as my iPhone was lost in a taxi. One day, when I go to the toilet, it accidentally slipped out of my pocket (of my trousers) and dropped on the floor, which was covered with vinyl sheet (not carpet, but not as hard as tiles). The height level was just like 1 foot high. The phone fell out of the original LG case with a flap (that goes with the purchase at an additional US$22). Then I found the glass covering the screen was cracked, and the touch screen function did not work. I brought to the LG service centre in Kowloon. The lady at the service centre seemed to be very well used to this type of damage and could immediately tell me that the monitor was broken and not covered by warranty, and the replacement cost would be HK$1,400 (US$180). She even said that as the touch screen function was lost, there was no need for my password. They would just replace the monitor and there would no data would be lost as they didn't need to touch the body of the phone.
I had used the different iPhones and a Samsung Galaxy phone for many years and these phones had fallen from much higher level for nearly a hundred times and never failed. I must say that they were hard and sturdy. I had much regret in purchasing this LG G2 upon the persuasion of the salesman at the shop - the functioning of this phone is not better than the iPhone, but it certainly is not as hard wearing.
Good: battery life, spped, screen preformence
Comment: one word, buy it!
Good: Display is beautiful, Camera is GREAT, Battery is good, easy to use, good memory,
Bad: NO SD Card slot
Comment: Just got the phone and I love it. I was going to get the Samsung Galaxy S4 but after reviewing this and buying it, Im happy i didnt. This phone is amazing in comparison to the samsung. Granted you cant add an SD card but the 32mb strorage is superior. I have a ton of pictures, apps,music and contacts and still have so much room left.
If you deciding on what phone to get, I would highly recommend this phone.
The Camera is amazing and the picture is so clear and crisp. I love my new phone! ;-)
Good: Beautiful screen, awesome camera, very fast performance, UI looks good
Bad: Too much plastic
Comment: Awesome phone. I just got it a month ago and really oferperforms my expectations! Just hate a little the plasticky feel but it's easy to get used to.
